"Reverend Taylor put us in touch with Pastor Lewis Ragins
of the Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church
in Gulfport."Community worked with Pastor Ragins
to arrange the shipment, valued at well over $100,000, to the Gulfport area.
"We were a bit concerned at first, because our facility had sustained quite a bit of damage, and we really had nowhere to store the speakers," Pastor Ragins
reported."But the folks at Community not only paid for the shipment, they arranged for the trailer to be left with us for over a week while we distributed the speakers."Ragins
has been working with local worship organizations of all denominations, as well as the Harrison, Biloxi and Gulfport school districts, to offer the loudspeakers to churches, schools and community centers throughout the region.
